In Wicked’s new “Wedding Bell Blues”, the always delightful Kirsten Price plays a bride-to-be with a serious case of cold feet whose friends try to convince her why giving up a life of carefree sexual encounters with total strangers for the regimented monotony of married life is a Good Thing. But it’s all done with a light touch: director Jonathan Morgan’s customary sense of humor helps to leaven the film’s soul-crushing message that patriarchal oppression always triumphs over a woman’s right to control her own destiny. In fact, it all turns out to be quite hilarious!
Keener minds than ours may choose to watch the film with a more critical eye attunded to its potential antifeminist nuances. Then again, with Kristin’s coevals Ann Marie Rios, Nicole Sheridan, and Samantha Sin rounding out the cast and sex this hot–not to mention the sight of Randy Spears in the most ridiculous looking fright wig we have ever seen–we’re not entirely sure anyone will be paying much attention to the finer points of story line anyway.
